needed to protect the compound where ambassador stevens was killed. the lt. colonel wood revealing security in benghazi remained a struggle the entire time he was there. democrats trying to pin the blame on budget cutbacks by republicans. >> perhaps if there were more resources we might have had a different result. i must note, though, that while the republican budget increases the budget of the defense defendant, it slashes the budget that would have protected these diplomats. >> i might note that the funding that is currently enjoyed by the state department was voted bipartisan, one more democrat voting for the appropriations than republicans. >>neil: they are putting it on all republicans and it ain't flying well with senator graham. you have heard that. what do you think of that? >>guest: as the ranking republican on the foreign operations subcommittee that funds the state department and that is a bunch of garbage. this is about -- you talk about the fiscal cliff being predictable, what is predictable with a lack of security in libya and militias are not dealt with, consulates

do know enough about the late ambassador stevens' concern of increasing violence. he must have cabled this to the state department? you requested the cables to the state department? >>guest: i know that congressman issa's committee is trying to get the cables. that request has been made. the american people deserve to know the truth. one of the most troubling things is the changing stories we see from this administration about what happened in libya. it is really important we know. >>neil: how much of a focus should paul ryan make? unconscious obviously the economy is the foremost issue but there are two questions for the vice president. the first one is when the administration, when ambassador rice went on television and you have had all the conflicting stories why did this happen? why did this misleading of the american people happen? you really have to answer that for the american people. second, there were requests for more security at the embassy, why was the security so inadequate? if light of the threats that were made and the prior incidents in libya. those are two questions t

that could be sensitive but if we already know that the ambassador stevens requested in the diary talked about concerns for his safety and those in the compound, i don't think it is a leap to assume that he conveyed that to the state department by cables or that sort of thing. so where are the cables? >>guest: that is exactly right. we foe how to do this. we know how to go behind closed doors. we would like to think we know how to keep secrets but that doesn't always seem to be the case. the ambassador was absolutely concerned, as was his security detail, and, again, this is the president's war. we have the president the united states and his administration, opening up negotiations with our number one, arguably, enemy there, the muslim brotherhood. we have requests for security which they will not give yet our guys in paris seem to get all of the security they want. >>neil: they were blaming that on republicans. >>guest: well, of course, of course, it is very easy to blame the republicans. that is nonsense. it's any descriptive word you want to use. i just think that for the vice preside
